I just learned that this was a highly sought after color a while back. Apparently, Kim K said this was one of her favorite lipsticks. I can see that. She favors a peachy nude in a lot of her smoky eye looks.

Out of these lipsticks, Belle De Jour has the least amount of peach and is the sheerest. Sheers are usually more glossy and has slip to them compared to other finishes. However, when you apply the lipstick, it has a semi satin finish. There's one issue with this lipstick that's kept me on the fence: it seemed to be very drying on me. I'm a bit dehydrated and probably soak up any moisture that my body comes in contact with, but seriously out of all my lip products this is the one I'm constantly breaking out salve and balm and reapplying the color. Maybe that's just me.
Here I am wearing NARS Belle De Jour lipstick with MAC's Creamola lip pencil.
Do you like Belle De Jour? What's your favorite NARS lipstick?
